Inclusive Access Materials

What is inclusive Access? 

The Inclusive Access Program at Murray State University is a course materials delivery system which provides access to the latest online educational technologies, for materials chosen by our faculty, at prices far below the cost of traditional printed books, breaking the cycle of spiraling student costs.  By providing a single access source, Inclusive Access turns each class roster into a buying group, with the purchasing power to demand better pricing in exchange for enrollment volume.

How does the program work?

Students simply go to class and will have access on day one to the E-book and online course learning tools that are required for the course.  MyGate accounts will be automatically charged the corresponding fee for these programs on the day after the last day to drop or add courses for the session.  The corresponding deadlines for each class are listed in the Participating Courses section at the bottom of this page.  

How do I opt out of the program?

Students wishing to exercise their right to opt out of an eligible Inclusive Access course materials fee should submit the “opt out” form, provided here, by end of day on the last day to drop or add courses for that session.  Students who opt will not have access to complete required homework assignments and tests through the online program in Canvas.  

In an effort to protect students and ensure their best interest, the U.S. Department of Education published new rules (34CFR668.161-167) via the Federal Register on October 30, 2015. The Program Integrity and Improvement rules require Murray State University to provide students the ability to opt-out of course/class fees associated with books or supplies.

34CFR668.164 (c) (2) page 67196 (PDF page 72):

(2) An institution may include the costs of books and supplies as part of tuition and fees under paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this section if:

(i) The institution —
(A) Has an arrangement with a book publisher or other entity that enables it to make those books or supplies available to students below competitive market rates;
(B) Provides a way for a student to obtain those books and supplies by the seventh day of a payment period; and
(C) Has a policy under which the student may opt out of the way the institution provides for the student to obtain books and supplies under this paragraph (c)(2).

A student who opts out under this paragraph (c) (2) is considered to also opt out under paragraph (m) (3) of this section;
